Eccolopops Brings Authentic Italian Gelato, Pops to Downtown Miami (and Our Dogs Too)

July has just begun, and everyone in Miami can't seem to shut up about how hot it is. We get it -- it's miserable outside. That means you have to get creative. When the A/C isn't enough, what's a guy or gal to do?

It just so happens that a frozen-pop shop opened last Thursday, right in time to cool us down.

Filippo Tavazzani, age 31, is 100 percent authentic Italian, and so are the products sold in his new downtown Miami store, Eccolopops. An admirer of the American dream since his youth, Tavazzani finally realized his goal of starting a business in Miami with the opening of his shop.
